Just wanted to update -- looks like work on the conversion of the hotel from the Sheraton Society Hill to Marriott Old City is almost over, Clemens is the GC. The "new" hotel is operating while renovations takes place in other parts of the building. But the reviews thus far are very solid on hotel/travel sites.



So does this mean that construction for the tower will be starting very soon?

The photo above is the renovations of the existing hotel since it has changed brands. Renovations have been happening since Spring until now.

I haven't seen any activity on the corner where the high rise is proposed. I'm there pretty often and can provide a status update as soon as any indication of work begins.

Any legal updates? It's a by-right build, but the NIMBY Old City neighborhood association sued and I think it's above the Court of Common Pleas now in their appeal process.

??? Didn't the NIMBY Old City neighborhood organization go defunct a couple of years ago after their frivolous suit happiness made them lose their insurance? This seems more like the work of the NIMBY Society Hill organization to me...

It is. Paul Boni. And this parcel is in Society Hill. The Southern side of Walnut and south of that (till hitting Queen Village) is Society Hill. I don't know the status of any appeals as to this, though.

The civic assocation dropped their appeal though the Towers owner association hired Richard Demarco to appeal the common pleas court decision to commonwealth court. Just a matter of time here, the nimby's don't have a real case.
